The window for setting yourself personal challenges never actually closes because any time is the right time to conjure up new aspirations and strive towards improvement. Managing director Obi Shorinwa of Ora Group practices setting goals and challenges in both his personal life and his career. Here, Obi Shorinwa of Ora Group explains why setting these challenges are valuable and he shares with us his most effective strategies for making it a simple process.
By setting yourself mini challenges that offer a reward for yourself afterward, you will drive your competitive side and your increase your desire to succeed. In turn, you will experience a sense of fulfillment and achievement, the feeling of winning and achievement.
Set yourself the challenge to remove all expectations for a while, both in work and your personal life. By suspending judgment in a given moment, you open your mind to entirely new possibilities and are less likely to become disappointed or discouraged when you don’t receive the outcome you would normally expect, as well as welcoming new possibilities.
An Hour A Day – Your Way
Designate an hour to yourself every day, and do something you enjoy. This may seem unrealistic for those who feel that they have no time in the day to spare or they are too tired by the end of the day. The truth is everybody has the same amount of time every day, but not everybody has the same priorities. Just by setting yourself this challenge, you will gain an hour every day. You could wake up an hour early, or use your lunch break more productively. You just need to be strict with yourself and stick to the challenge. What would you do if you had just an hour to yourself every day?
Obi Shorinwa of Ora Group believes that everyone should have the challenge to help them feel alive. A challenge is different from stress because you feel more in control and have a goal to work towards. And in return, it’s one of the things that helps you to deal with your stress in other areas of life. As well as this, “It Is important to set yourself goals and challenges that will increase your performance and bring out your competitive edge, as this will give you more desire and hunger to accomplish more” explains Obi Shorinwa of Ora Group.
